Jason Priem; Heather Piwowar

This talk discusses “Get The Research,” a new project to build a free, open-source search engine to help regular people find, read, and understand the scholarly literature. Get The Research is built on the 20M OA resources in the Unpaywall database. It supports a search experience tailored to non-academic users, by offering a simple clean interface, search suggestions, jargon translation, multiple languages, and--most importantly--a corpus that’s 100% free to read by everyone.

COI Statement: OpenAlex is a free, open-source project of the nonprofit Impactstory, which the presenter is a cofounder of.
